It has been necessary to change the planned leaving times for our children who are competing in the Taree Speech and Drama Eisteddfod this Thursday 21st May.
Buses will leave the school as follows:
Stage One (K, Yr 1, Yr 2) 8:45 a.m.
Stage Two and Three (Yr 3 -6) 9:00 a.m.
As we expect to be performing at about 10:00 a.m., we are concerned that we may be late if there should be a delay associated with the current road works between here and Taree. Some time is needed to organise our children upon arrival and to gain entry in the correct part of the entertainment centre.
Some primary children who are at school in time will probably also travel on the first two buses.
We are aware that it is possible that the eisteddfod could be running late, but it is very difficult to predict the speed of the debates that are scheduled before our section. It would be very disappointing to miss our chance to perform after the children and teachers have worked so hard in rehearsal.
We also understand that this means some inconvenience for parents as some buses will not arrive in time for our Stage One students to catch the Taree connection, so alternative arrangements for lifts to school will need to be made. This is unfortunate, but better than missing our chance to perform.
Thank you for your support in this activity, which is an exciting opportunity for our students.
